Surprised proposal photoshooting in Kyoto in June

It will be rainy season and getting hot in Japan soon. This season is not good for tourists but we have beautiful flowers which we can see only this season. Hydrensias will full bloom from the beginning of June to the end of June. We can see them at some parks, gardens, some temples and shrines in Kyoto. They are very big flowers if compare with other flowers and look so good to take pictures. Look gorgeous, lovely and colorful. Hydrangeas change color depend on soil. Blue, pink, purple, red, so many colors and you must say beautiful and get great pictures if you take my photoshooting tour.

Surprised proposal Photoshooting in Gion area and Kyoto Imperial palace!!

This tour was held in Cherry blossoms season 2019. Actually it was a bit easier than Cherry blossoms season but I checked where we cloud see them in Kyoto and we visited some places. It is so crowded in Gion area every time but we met early morning and started the tour. A lot of tourist hang out around Hanamikoji main street of Gion area at daytime but nobody walked. We could to take pictures at the middle of the street easily. It was getting more people when we got some photo spots in Gion area but even it, it was much better than daytime. I recommend everybody easily morning photoshooting if you can wake up earlier. I like Gion area and it is great place after all.

We went to Demachiyanagi station from Gionshijyo station by Keihan line. It took just 5-10 min and good place to take pictures too. I saw we may see Cherry blossoms near Demachiyanagi station on the web, So we tried to go. As expected, Cherry blossoms were blooming and they were so beautiful. When I was about to take pictures, he suddenly proposed her under the Cherry blossoms. I didn’t know about that and of course she didn’t either. I took pictures a lot at the moment and was so surprised because I have taken surprised proposal pictures many time but I knew about it every time. His proposal was succeeded and they looked so happy, It was awesome moment.

We got some pictures with Cherry blossoms and greens at Kyoto Imperial palace after that. Totally it was great day and I was so happy to help them to make memories in Kyoto Japan. Thank you and see you again!

Cherry blossoms season we've been waiting for!!

It was the end of March, we visited in Arashiyama area for photoshooting with cherry blossoms. The girl has wanted to see cherry blossoms in Japan for long time and came to Japan finally. We talked where the best place, which day the best day for photoshooting and seeing Cherry blossoms many times because it was a little earlier than Cherry blossoms season. It was worth it, Because we could see some cherry blossoms tree in Kyoto. She was so excited and her husband was looking at her looked so happy. Not to mention, They made me happy too. Their outfits were so nice because her scarf and his shirts look like Cherry blossoms color. It was the best color combination.

Not only Cherry blossoms, we enjoyed at Bamboo forest, and main street of Arashiyama area, Sairyoji temple. She got ice cream of Cherry blossoms flavor. It sounds wired but this ice cream is very popular around Arashiyama area in Spring and Summer. I have seen some people eating it even in winter. Actually I have never tried but she said it’ good, So I will try it this summer for sure.

We had happy time because they were so cheerful and we had talked about a lot of things like Japanese foods and our different cultures. I really like the pictures and they make me to remember that day. I hope see you again and thank you for great day!!

Wedding photoshooting with the ocean in Kyoto!!!

I have taken great pictures with my student I really like. I met her around 10 years ago and she was one of my first students. I remember she was so cheerful and friendly to teachers especially me, sometimes too much. Hahaha. I was a high school teacher 10 years ago and she helped me when I have some problems and I helped her when she was worrying about something too. We have been keeping in touch after she graduated but we didn’t meet for about 8 years. I have heard from her about getting married in June and asked me Pre-wedding photos at the beach in Kyoto. This place is the most important place for them and they really wanted to be taken pictures here. It was long way to get there but I decided to photoshoot this place for them.

It was bad weather, cloudy and sometimes rain in the morning. But they and her smile made me to me don’t mind about that. It was really amazing time. She was so beautiful and I was glad because she has grown up but still friendly and cheerful like before 10 years. Her boyfriend was very kind and polite guy and I was super happy to take their pictures at the beach. I have taken wedding pictures many times but I was so glad to take pictures of my student. It was getting good weather and we could take pictures with blue sky and sea! So beautiful scenery!! They were satisfied with phtooshooting and it was great memories for me too.

I felt I have very happy life because I have many students I really like and I am loved by them too even now I have left school. I have been loving to teach, my student and school but I love to pictures and help and meet tourists who come to Japan now. I appreciate everything and everybody I have met in my life and I will keep on doing my best!!

Family Photoshooting tour in Kyoto Arashiyama with SAKURA

I met great family from Australia in JR Saga Arashiyama station, Kyoto. They have super cute kids were so friendly and became my friends at the end of the Arashiyama photo tour. They were a little shy when we have just met but they opened their mind to me soon after that. I could get many good pictures with their smiles and it was so easy to take pictures because they had natural smile and didn’t aware the camera. This tour was held the middle of March and It was a bit earlier for Cherry blossoms season but I checked where we can see them before this tour and found good place. We visited at Seiryoji temple and this place is my favorite place because less people than other places in Arashiyama and it’s very beautiful and peaceful place. It has full blooming Cherry blossoms and we could take many pictures with them. Kids were so excited to see Cherry blossoms and they were very cute like that. The tour was 2 hours tour but they didn’t cry, on the contrary they were happy during Photoshooting tour especially with Green tea ice cream.

I had awesome time with them and I want to see them again. Thank you for great day and I am looking forward to seeing you next time!!!

Awesome Cheery blossoms season!!!!

I had a lot of tours in Spring time with beautiful Cherry blossoms in Osaka, Kyoto, Tokyo and Nara. It was amazing season here and I was super happy to know many people who are my friends already now. I held the tour at Arashiyama park, Seiryoji temple, Maruyama park, Yasaka shrine, Demachiyanagi, Kyoto imperial palace, Gion area in Kyoto, Osaka castle park, Sumiyoshi park, Sumiyoshi shrine in Osaka, Nara park, Kasuga shrine in Nara. In addition, Ueno park, Odaiba in Tokyo. Cherry blossoms were blooming and beautiful everywhere in Japan. I got many great pictures and memories with them and they are unforgettable experiences for me and I hope for my guests too.

Cherry blossoms will bloom north of Japan area like Sapporo, Hakodate and Aomori. They bloom late because it’s colder than west south side. You can still see and take pictures with Cherry blossoms if you go to These areas. I am already missing Cherry blossoms and Spring. It is getting warm and Summer is coming soon. We can see other flowers and it is beautiful too. I am looking forward to meet new guests and friends in next season!!

The first Photoguider tour was held in Febrary, 2016

I have started to run this Photoguider tour from february in 2016. I was so nervous to see the first guest but didn’t need to be nervous after seeing him because he was super friendly and nice guy. He came to Japan from US and was interested in all of Japanese things. We met at Arashiyama station and went to Arashiyama bamboo forest, Seiryoji temple and Okochisanso garden. I have come to Arashiyama area many times before this tour to check where the best places to take pictures are. I took him to these places and take him pictures a lot and he liked to take pictures with his phone too, So I got many pictures of him when he was taking pictures. We talked about how to take pictures and Photoshooting. He has many knowledges of pictures and told me a lot of thing of it. It was very interesting for me.

I planed to hold this tour for 2 hours but it was over 3 hours and half. I couldn’t hold the tour on time but it was awesome experiences for me and he told me ‘This tour was amazing and he had a lot of fun. You are great Photoguider. You should keep doing this tour!!’. This words have been staying in my heart from that day and I have been holding Guide and Photoshooting tour for 3 year and met many awesome guests and could made great friends all over the world thanks of him. I won’t be able to forget this experience and him.

I will take pictures and give many happy to my guests from all over the world who have never seen yet.

Photoshoot in Arashiyama area, Kyoto

The Photoshooting tour in Arashiyama, Kyoto for solo traveler!!

A solo traveler joined photoguider tour in Arashiyama area of Kyoto. I have been this place many times for Photoshooting. Mountains, river, monkey park, and bamboo forest. Many natures welcome you every time. We start this tour from bamboo forest. It is so popular place in Kyoto and nice to take pictures there. I usually take guests to bamboo forest where is not known well and fewer people. It was first time to Photoshooting for her but she was looked like a model and natural. Usually everybody is nervous a little when I take pictures of them first time, So I always make them to be relax. This time I didn’t need to make her to be and could get many good pictures.

And then we walked to Seiryoji temple is large temple and away from bamboo forest a little. This place is very beautiful place to visit especially Autumn leaves season but unfortunately there are not red leaves there this time. But it was enough beautiful to take pictures and we got it a lot. I recommend Seiryoji temple to everybody who going to Arashiyama area in Kyoto. I have been there many times but never seen many people there and so peaceful.

The last place of this tour was Togetsu bridge. This bridge is very popular and famous in Arashiyama and a lot of people visit and take pictures there. We saw many students who come here for school trip and the girl wanted to take picture with them. It was amazing memories for her and they were glad too. I really enjoyed this tour with her and I hope see her again in Tokyo next time!!

Photoshoot tour with Autumn leaves in Arashiyama and Higashiyama, Kyoto

There are really beautiful red leaves in Kyoto in the end of October to November. We visit to Chishakuin temple to see leaves and take pictures there. They were super red and looked very beautiful with a little greens. It was the best season to see them and travel in Japan. After that, took pictures with many Torii gates in fushimiinari shrine and visited Arashiyama area. There are many people especially in Bamboo forest everyday. But some bamboo forests aren’t known very well and I took them there and took pictures a lot. Arashiyama area is very nice places such as Tenryuji temple, Arashiyama monkey park, Togetsu bridge and Kimono forest to sightseeing and take pictures. You should go there in Cherry blossoms season and Autumn leaves season. You can see amazing scenes there!!

Surprise proposal Photoshoot in Kyoto

It’s too late to write about great Photoshoot early summer 2018 but I will write how amazing here now. A guy contacted me about surprised proposal in Kyoto and I was so excited when I got a message from him. We have considered many time where and when the best for proposing and decide Chishakuin temple where is very famous for Hydrangeas. It was very awesome everything on the day. He proposed in front of many Hydrangeas and his partner was crying when she heard the word from him. I could see the best happiest time in their life. After that, We enjoyed photoshoot in Kyoto and had great time. I hope they are well and see them again in Japan.
